Keever thanks supporters for welcoming her home to Asheville, announces upcoming events

Here’s the text of the Patsy Keever campaign’s July 20 email newsletter:

Dear friend,

Thank you to everyone who made the “Welcome Home, Patsy” celebration the exhilarating event that it was. More than 200 supporters joined us last night at Asheville Brewing Company for lots of great food, drink and politicking. Sandra Richard Jordan drove all the way from Gastonia to be with us, and Brad Hankins, our website guru, came in from Johnson City, TN.

Our gratitude to Rafael Jimenez, a volunteer videographer, who shot interviews throughout the evening and captured Patsy’s remarks to the enthusiastic crowd. Also, take note of the delightful “Welcome Home” banner created by Bridget McCurry and campaign volunteers.
